New EC380DL excavator for Stockton Mine stripping contract

March 1, 2018

In February 2018 we purchased a new 40 tonne excavator due to retiring one of our 36 tonne excavators having completed 14,000hrs.

When looking for a replacement we evaluated the major brands and models and decided on a Volvo EC380DL with a 2.4 m3 bucket and CareTrack – Volvo’s remote machine monitoring system.

The excavator was supplied by TransDiesel, Christchurch. Destined for our operation at Stockton Mine we fitted it out to BT Mining’s specification including additional lights, hi vis, and hand and walkway rails, the majority of this work completed by TransDiesel prior to it leaving the branch.

The 380 is utilised predominately on civil works associated with our 9 month, 1M bcm overburden stripping contract at Stockton Mine.
